2009 Unmasking Whiteness Institute

AWARE-LA is now offering its workshop series on building white anti-racist practice and community in an intensive, 4-day institute for white people. Build community with other white people taking up work for racial justice. Through personal reflection, small and large group dialogue, and experiential activities, this institute invites white people to explore:

  • the meanings of whiteness
  • the construction of white racial identity
  • white privilege
  • multiple identities
  • systemic white supremacy
  • development of an anti-racist practice.

We will consider how being white shapes our lives, discover our role as white people in the struggle for social justice, and examine how to build stronger alliances with people of color.
